A book just printed in London 
entitled "Converts to Rome," 
gives some remarkable and in- 
teresting particulars of the large 
number of intellectual persons 
in Great Britain and Ireland who 
have joined the Catholic Church 
in recent years. It includes the 
names of no less than 572 of the 
Church of England clergy, 23 of 
the Episcopal Churph of Scot- 
land, 12 of the Episopalian 
Church of Ireland, and 12 Non- 
conformist ministers . During the 
same time 19 peers and 53 peer- 
esses have been received, and 
432 "members of the nobility," 
with 42 Baronets and 21 knights. 
The army has cotributed 306 
officers and the navy 64. Of Uni-
